Expectations re attending a library consultation

Please note that if the Clinical School refers you for library support:

  • Librarians at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne have no access to University resources and cannot provide advice on using them
  • Tutorials are run on SVHM resources which may require an SVHM login eg databases
  • Students are expected to have watched our video on searching Medline and attempted a search using that method BEFORE the tutorial. This method may differ from that used by your University.
  • BEFORE your tutorial please email the library at with:
    • the title of your topic and a short description
    • your search strategy using the method demonstrated in our video
    • your contact details
  • By the time you have watched the video you may no longer need our help!

Developing a search strategy in Ovid Medline
